Sometimes it’s nice just to laugh. But picking a comedy — finding a comedy — is often the most difficult decision I make every year. Actors say, “Dying is easy, but comedy is hard.” Well, writing a comedy is even harder. So I struggle to balance our season with a funny, light-hearted play.
Fortunately, Wendy MacLeod has given us a brand-new, classic, chick-flick rom com. A perfect way to escape the winter-inversion doldrums without leaving Salt Lake.
I have a group of women friends, and while our adventures are a bit tamer than Mary, Jo, and Liz’s, I can certainly recognize us in the characters in this play. (I’m a Jo by the way. Which character are you?)
Gentlemen, don’t roll your eyes. You always wanted to know what happens on those girls’ nights out.
